Off-street parking for your vehicle is behind the house and a few steps from the suite's entry. The front porch swing is the perfect place to relax and enjoy our front gardens or you may sit at the table nestled among the garden of potted plants on the deck located just outside your door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a large, attractive, private, and very comfortable suite in a lovely home near Mizzou campus. I don't think it is noted in the description, but there is excellent parking well away from the street. All of the amenities that you hope for at a hotel (including a hair dryer) are provided. Breakfast items and coffee were also provided. Dee couldn't have been more welcoming! The rates are very reasonable for such a nice, large space near campus. I highly recommend staying here!

Beautiful and relaxing get away!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved being at this beautiful get away. Ron & Dee have done a tremendous job decorating inside and out. They surprised us with many little perks which showed their generous spirit and wanting to make us feel welcome and relaxed. We are already planning our next trip to Columbia and will absolutely choose this wonderful home! This is definitely a five star property and I would strongly recommend it to anyone choosing a time to relax and enjoy their time in Columbia.

Beautiful house with amazing garden in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Dee and Ron have done an amazing job restoring this old Victorian house. It is quite cozy with 2 bedrooms and a living room. Beautifully decorated with everything you would need and more. Lovely outside sitting areas in their incredible garden. It is in a great location to walk to the park or downtown. They are wonderful hosts and we really enjoyed visiting with them. We will definitely stay here again!

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

This suite worked great for our needs. Nice set up inside a nice Victorian house. The suite is on the ground floor with entrances from the front hall or from the back. The entire suite could be closed off from the rest of the house. It was a bit further of a walk to "downtown" than we anticipated. We would stay again.

Loved everything about Arbor House! Dee is friendly and charming and very helpful with any questions or needs you may have. It is an incredibly relaxing place with lovely gardens. Would definitely return if we are in Columbia MO again.
